Update 3/6/10 - the answer is: A Japanese stirrup from the Edo Period, 1615-1868, for use by a Samurai horseman. Congratulations to Ghodamus who got it first (thanks for taking the time to write the description!) and to Splint Chesthair for this gem: "Crotch-mounted bottle opener."

It's a farming tool... attach it behind a horse and it gets dragged along the ground, creating a little trench as its pulled. The farmers can then plant crops in the trench.

Anything in XX~XXXL, thanks

It's a sturrup from a midevel Asian saddle. I love the kitchen cutlery clock, if my vote still counts. I hate how long the feeds take to get to me- I always miss out on all the cool stuff :(
